James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Day 56

Day 56: Wyatt has had another good day! He was moved to a new room again but only for staffing reasons. His TPN (liquid nutrition) was turned off and he is disconnected from another machine!! Awesome news!! The central line is still in his chest but just hanging just in case they do need to reconnect him. His cannula is still on a pressure of 2L. The doctors thought about turning it down but decided they'd done enough today and are going to let him keep taking in the milk and focus on gaining weight for a few days. Speaking of.... His continuous 30 calories milk feed is up to 18.7 or 19.7 (I honestly can't remember all of a sudden but I'll ask tonight when we call to check in). We did get to nurse today and he did a good job. The nurses are also trying to bottle feed him once a day and he hasnt been too interested just yet. Prayers are being answered in big ways! Thank y'all!!!
